I think your second para may have missed Colin's point. He was saying that possession stats/chances don't mean anything if you're not scoring goals and was using Wigan as an example of that. To be fair to Colin, he's been consistent with that all along.
I'd take the title every time but oh for the choice eh? :-)
I really hope that FSG get the wallet open (again) in the summer for the proven, class players that BR has alluded to. I think it would give him the ability to have a real go at a top 4 finish next season and we could judge him fairly at the end of it.
